Robbie Henshaw ‘delighted’ to sign IRFU deal through 2025
Robbie Henshaw has extended his player contract until 2025.
The Leinster and Ireland center started every game of Ireland’s 2021 Guinness Six Nations campaign and his form earned him a place in the Lions squad, where he started in all three Tests against the Springboks.
Born in Athlone, he made his international debut against USA in 2013 and has represented his country 57 times, winning two Six Nations titles with Ireland and playing at two Rugby World Cups (2015, 2019).
At the provincial level, Henshaw has won a European Champions Cup and four PRO14 titles with Leinster, and in 2016 he won a PRO12 title with Connacht. He has played 63 games for Leinster, scoring 14 tries.
“I’m delighted with the contract extensions with Ireland and Leinster Rugby,” said Henshaw. “We are fortunate to have such quality centers in Ireland and it’s a really competitive position which makes it very exciting.
“There is so much to look forward to in the coming months and I want to contribute to the success of both teams.”
David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director added: “In 2021 Robbie has shown he is one of the best rugby players in the world with dominant performances for both Ireland and the British and Irish Lions.
“The start of this season has been punctuated by a couple of injuries but he is a player who makes a huge contribution to both Leinster and Ireland and he will play a huge role in raising both sides’ ambitions this season and in the next to achieve in the coming years. “
